Spanish wind energy giant Gamesa has beaten its wind turbine manufacturing record, set back in 2008, by building more than 1,880 wind turbines so far this year, with a total productive capacity of 3,880 MW. The previous record was set in 2008 with 3,787 Mw, the company said in a statement.
Furthermore, turbines were assembled in different plants all over the world — India (36%), Europe (28%), China (26%) and Brazil (10%).
To mark this record, Gamesa organized an event at the nacelle assembly plant, located in Agreda (Spain). Nacelles are a key piece in wind turbines, housing electronic and mechanic components.
“Since the beginning, the Agreda plant has produced more than 5,800 nacelles, sent to different destinations in the world, including Europe, United States, Chile, Egypt, Jordan or China. But this plant is also Gamesa’s strategic benchmark, as future machines are assembled and validated here, as well as management systems and processes that are subsequently implemented in other plants of the company,” explained Iñaki Murgiondo, industrial director at Gamesa.
